About the Australian Government data (data.gov.au)

Data.gov.au provides an easy way to find, access and reuse public datasets from the Australian Government and state and territory governments. Easy access to other government data catalogues offering open data is provided through the Catalogues page.

They encourage all users to improve government information by using it to develop tools and applications which benefit all Australians. Submitting links to these new applications will enable their promotion through data.gov.au in future enhancements to the site.

Interestingly, they list the National Public Toilet Map as one of their most commonly downloaded datasets!
